Quote Hodan: The sire bond was the most stupidest way they could have continued the triangle. I wouldn't have mind the whole explanation but the back and forth between the love scene and Stefan/Caroline conversation just ruined the moment I and others like me have been waiting to see for almost 4 years. Seriously! Way to make a major fandom angry and betrayed yet again, JP.
ITA! The sire bond was so dumb and revealing it during the love scene ruined it.
The way I see it, this can go two ways.
1. Damon realizes there is a bond and thinks it is the only reason Elena is with him. Possibly he orders her not to come to him again. Now it is on Elena to chase him for a change. Eventually they say the bond formed because she already cared for him. They did say the hybrids bonded to Klaus because they were grateful he freed them from the pain of becoming wolves.
That is ok with me. It keeps Delena from getting boring like Stelena who had sex and never got another story. Theybspent the next three years like an old married couple.
2. This was all another fake out designed to string Delena fans along. It will all be blamed on the sire bond, giving everyone a reason to forget they had sex. It can all be swept under the carpet with the sire bond broom. Elena will g back to Stefan and that will be that.
Aside from being another lame ending to what could have been a plot twist, I suspect it will kill the show. Delena fans are mad and this would be both a slap in the face and proof they never plan to really do the couple. I could see people tuning out in frustration and anger.
Honestly I no longer trust Julie Plec's comments. After saying Elena was growing up into a new person and that people were seeing that Damon was ofen right, she turned around and made the new Elena something people are actively trying to fix because it is "wrong". Then had Caroline say Damon is never right. All the "right" Damon said was only right because of the sire bond influencing Elena. She often says things that happen much differently. Either she has no idea how her writing translates on TV or she lies to fool people.
And the more she gushes about something the lamer I know it is going to be.
